. and i've been speaking to some people very close to the obama administration, who played a big part in his foreign policy team and i think they realize big challenges are coming, particularly in the middle east. >> and what's coming is the state of the union which is the president's next chance to do a deeper dive and get granular, but fate has a funny way. >> and things are a little bit out of his control. i don't know what he would say in the -- in the state of the union that's very different from what he said here. he can outline principles which are we support democracy. but if you're dealing with a region that is collapsing, state implosion in parts of the middle east, renewed and revised tribalism and conflicts, i don't know how defending a general principle of supporting democracy is going to contain the challenges in a very big region of the world. >> in a way, david, this mirrors the conference you had yesterday on "meet the press." it's kind of the changing world, the unanticipatables, the algerias that we did not know were out there a week ago. >> and this question too th
that in an inaugural address? >> it's a little bit surprising, but given his history, the obama administration's history with the repeal of don't ask, don't tell and also his revolution of gay marriage, it's not that surprising. >> what about you, greg? you were surprised he specifically mentioned stonewall. >> i was surprised that he mentioned stonewall because it's not something you hear when they talk about civil rights, especially from a president, so that really struck me when he said that. >> what do you think it does for gay people not only in this country but around the world? >> i hope it pushes us forward and makes us equal with everyone else, included with everyone else in the country. >> do you feel an additional sense of pride having heard the president mention that today? >> yes, i do. i really do. it makes me feel good to be an american right now and makes me think things will be better in the future. >> thanks pho boto both of you, thanks to the students from kentucky who stood around and waite waited. for you, it was really a speech about better equality? >> i think speeches a
